Enough of the velvet and the socks…OK!…am I the only one that uses Low Friction Sleeves? 😎
I’ve been using them for more than eight years now. The ‘SA-1’ Low Friction Sleeve is a paper sleeve specially made for application squeegees and gives a non-abrasive silky smooth edge without the loss of pressure or contact.
I wouldn’t use a squeegee without one – every day – every job! As the edge becomes ruffled or damaged you simply rotate the sleeve a little around the squeegee to bring a fresh part to the leading edge – so they last for ages. I believe the paper is impregnated with something but they are very smooth and very easy to use.
Made by 3M Graphics Division, I buy them from Spandex or Metamark and I think they’re about 25p per sleeve but not sure. They come five to an envelope and / or 20 envelopes to a box (as shown).
Anyway – try them and you won’t use anything else!
